Contemporary SF has rejected that concept much more profoundly than did modernism or surrealism. "Realistic fiction" is remorselesslyand inadvertently about the past.

This doesn't mean you haveto jettison all conventions of narrative and character relationships, or even that SF can't borrow experimental devicesfrom modernism and postmodernism.
